I absolutely love visiting the US National Parks when I’m stateside, so in celebration of 100 years of National Parks, I thought I’d leave you with some of my favourite pics from Rocky Mountain NP, Yosemite NP & Muir Woods National Monument. There’s no better way to get outdoors and be amazed by how incredible… More Happy 100 years US National Parks!

I can’t help but be inspired by the awesome athletes competing in Rio, especially the amazing Aussies who are kicking butt over in the Athletics. So I figured I’d been taking my running a little on the easy side and it was time to take it up a notch. It just so happened that I… More Channeling my inner Olympian!

It’s that time of the 4 years again, the Olympics have started. In the traditional lead up to the games we’ve heard all the stories out of the woodwork – the venues aren’t ready, it’s too dangerous, these will be the worst games, the Olympics is no longer relevant. Phooey I say to the nay-sayers,… More It’s Olympics time and it’s awesome.
I’ve been training since March, with my eyes on the July Half prize. Now that’s done and dusted I just had this mental tiredness that made me actually not want to run. Combined with a crazy commute for work and then trying to get my training runs in, I was left completely mentally tired. So… More The Mental Game

I decided, with my limited trail experience, that 10km wouldn’t be soooo bad as an entry level onto the scene. Then the race organisers decided… More Hitting up the trail!

This year has been a year of discovery. After taking the nutrition game a little more seriously at the end of last year, 2016 was going to be the year of running fuel exploration. One small step for me, meant one giant leap for runner me. I began the tried and true form of testing,… More Check yo hydration! (MeStrength Review)
I entered the Gold Coast Half Marathon exactly 4 days after I returned from the US back in January. I blame the Dopey dredge but for some reason I decided to go after a Half PR – I knew I was better than my 2:54 previous best and naturally I didn’t beat it at either… More Gold Coast Half, achievement unlocked! (Race Recap)
I can’t believe I’m staring down my goal race, especially since I signed up a couple of days after I back from the January trip – July seemed so far away. Enlisting in the help of Sweat Tracker – they’ve made me a far more confident (and faster) runner – was by far the best… More The goal race approaches!!!
